winner. laying the bench mark it's the debate falls into the media means of romney has to perform if he doesn't it's an excuse of another round in my mind of disgustingly biassed pieces of mitt romney. i believe phil is right when bara barack obama was challenged in the interview last week by jorge he was challenged really hard. he is uncomfortable when he is confronted with facts and simply worded questions. if mitt romney remind people we have 11.7 unemployment not 8.1 america's best days cannot be behind her they have to be in front of her i think he wins by not having a moment but having a moment of real leadership and real maturity. >> in that first debate wednesday october 3rd fox news channel coverage starts at precisely at 8:55 p.m. with meg megan kelly and bret baier. >> not a minute later than that. 8:55. >> before you leave your house let's get the first degree weather update. >> we have a lot of heavy ooifrn the weekend. todayed rain is over tennessee and the carolinas already starting to see some of that early this morning and some of the heavy rain into portions of eastern
